, america. community organizing is all fun and games until someone starts organizing the community against the community organized government-run healthcare. then, it's time to start breaking some legs, you know what i'm saying? here is the one thing tonight. while the seiu dons their healthcare t-shirts, the tensions keep getting worse and the president is not saying much helpful. how about throwing us a bone here, mr. president? how about a little, hey, you know what? you guys should knock it off. i mean, if he was a parent -- i mean, aren't we going to for the nanny staith here? shouldn't the parent say something like, hey, you knock it off, and you, too! be nice or no healthcare for either of you. i'm just saying it might help kwell "it's just a g.o.p. astro astroturf mob kind of thing." oh, he is not saying anything because this is just pretend grassroots people saying something about pretend healthcare. they are not credible like those of us at seiu, you know, regular people that are in the neighborhoods. the other side would never think about running ads on craigslist to buy support
---www.ncicap.org--- glenn: hello, america. we will focus on obama, internationalism, graft, and tonight, hidden agendas, and tomorrow, the army that will enforce them. tonight, if you care anything about free speech, you're going to see it crushed in front of your eyes. rush limbaugh will be joining me in a few minutes. if the things in the world just don't make sense, we're going to make sense of it beginning again tonight. come on, follow me. hello, america. we are halfway through the week, and here are the things that we have learned so far, if you're joining us for the first time tonight. first of all, congress is not -- i mean, they're just beyond not reading the bills. they're not even writing the bills. they are being written by a vast network that is not conspiratorial. it is all out in the wide open, but the media refuses to report on them. organizations that are filled with socialists, communists, revoluntionaries, organizations that pull their members, yes, from legitimate businesses, from politicians but also from groups that most americans have never heard of, like "movemen
priority and yes, i have read the bill. >> -- taxes. >> please don't yell out, this is america, this is memphis, tennessee, take two aspirin and come back in the morning. >> reporter: boos and cheers greeted ed perlmutter. proof people are passionate when it comes to health care reform. >> i just appreciate the fact that you're all willing to take time to come out. thank you for exercising your civic duty of talking to your congressman. >> scenes like that playing out all over america. and it's not only the crowds losing their cool at these town hall shout downs. listen to georgia congressman david scott get fired up when the topic came up at a town hall meeting just last week. >> not a single one of you had the decency to call my office and set up for a meeting. okay. then do that! do that! but don't -- don't come and take advantage of what these individuals have done. you want a meeting with me on health care, i'll give it to you. >> well, next hour, we'll tell you why that may not exactly be true in this case and show you much more on this very heated exchange. much, much mo
of america. >> 1500 died, only 30 were classified as innocent civilians and there were about 50 police officers that died. >> it's a classic turf war between different cartels. >> they spent 23 years fighting for the drug enforcement administration. recently retired he was in charge of global operations for the dea's 5300 special agents. >> along the southwest border is some of the most lucrative turf in the world. location, location, location. >> ten billion dollars in bulk cash grows the u.s.-mexico border on a given day related to drug trafficking. >> ten billion narco trafficking dollars is on par with the tourism industry which generated about $13 billion for mexico. during his presidential campaign felipe calderon vowed to crack down on the cartels. >> the army came in with about 2,000 troops. felipe calderon sent 5,000 additional army troops that will join the police department. >> 45,000 soldiers have been deployed all across mexico, a quarter of the army is now committed to fighting narco terror. >> since december 2006, he has waged a miserable battle against the narco kings m
sean: tonight, bill clinton, and two hostages released from north korea. but what did america gives up? >> the most effective means of protecting american safety. sean: eric holder. $9 million in the lawyer's fees. that is a whole lot in ethics violations. >> i formally announce my candidacy for the united states presidency. sean: an investigation into the latest golden boy of the political machine. frank luntz, and much much more. "hannity" starts right now. and this is a fox news alert. the two journalists detained in north korea have been released. laura ling and euna lee were released by north korean dictator kim jong il. the pardon was announced just hours after former president bill clinton arrived in p'yongyang. the journalists are both employees of the cable television station current, which is owned by former vice president al gore, and they were charged with illegally entering north korea and sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for their crime, but now, the ordeal is over, and the journalists are on routed back to the u.s. aboard president clinton's airplane. -- they are e
believe that elizabeth and i both agree that there needs to be comprehensive health care reform in america. but the kind of comprehensive health care reform is what really is going to be the most important item. and i hope that it's a bipartisan one that i think can be passed energy. >> larry: elizabeth, can that happen without the government being involved in a quazi insurance company of its own? >> we can pass health care reform without what is commonly referred to as a public option, which means to compete with your private insurers, with united health care or aetna or blue cross/blue shield, you would have the federal government offering you the option of insuring yourself through the government plan. i think it would be a huge mistake to pass any kind of reform without that public option. for a lot of reasons. one of the things we want to do is make certain we're providing to 46 million americans who are uninsured to 25 million who are underinsured, a way of getting reliable, transparent and cost effective, accessible -- cost accessible insurance. the way you do that is make certain y
, and remember, you question with boldness! come on, follow me. hello, america. we have some more questions for you tonight. i believe, just so you know going in that this is probably the most controversial show of the week, because you must understand the last three episodes of this show to be able to see and come to a place where you can believe that these crazy things may actually be happening. i want you to know, i hope these things are not happening. i hope that there is some other explanation, but i needed you to see who is advising the president earlier this week and what they are doing and who they are before i could ask you to look at this phrase from barack obama and think that the president of the united states literally means this. >> we cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we set. we've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded. glenn: i mean, i don't know how anybody is going to respond to the facts that i'm going to present tonight, because quite
. these are frightening people and you have to answer one question tonight, and, is america waking up? i think they are. they are giving congressmen an earful during their listening tours. some of them don't seem to be listening. oh, they will. i promise you video that you just want to see. you're not going to want to miss this. if you believe this country is great, and you don't think a disclaimer should steal your right to property and privacy, stand up and come follow me! well, hello, america. well, that is one ugly guy. holy cow, that's me! hello and welcome to the program. apparently last friday, i committed the ultimate sin in the liberal blogging world. mom, i'm working on a blog right now! yeah, apparently i questioned a government program. how could you possibly do that? cash for clunkers has orwellian wording that is creepy and anybody that isn't creeped out isn't paying attention. that's just the problem here. i brought that up. the liberal blogs went nuts. oh, that crazy conspiracy theorist glenn beck. really, it is a conspiracy? i mean, it was riert there. hello! yeah, in that faux news, y
clunker, stand up! come on, follow me. by the way, hello, america. it's friday. i want to show you here. this is at houdini water torture cell. our miracle worker, barack obama, is upside-down now, blindfolded and chained in. houdini could escapes. we'll monitor his progress to see how the magician of magicians gets out of this trouble. cash for clunkers program is what he's being suspended in right now, but he will get out of it. it's proving that all the big government haters are wrong, because it's so popular in just a few days, nearly all of the money for the program has already been used up. here is the one thing -- congratulations, washington. you figured out that people like free stuff! but that doesn't mean cash for clunkers is a success. sure, all the politicians are giddy. representative ed markey, the author of cash for clunkers, says it has become one of the most success successful stimulus programs of 2009. whoa. that's saying an awful lot of press secretary robert gibbs said "you keep on buying cars all weekend long!" but what really has happened with the cash for clunkers
the campaign is there is no red america, no blue america, no republican, no democrat. there is one america. tonight if what we are hearing is correct, if he says we are going to cling to the public plan no matter what, he is saying blue america wins. i'm the president of that america. this government-run plan doesn't have the support in the middle. that's why he is losing democrat support in the senate and thinking of trying to jam this through quickly with 50 votes. >> roy, do you think this is something they would go ahead with or maybe trying to float this idea to put pressure on everyone to come to some sort of agreement? >> i think that has to be part of it. just today gibbs said they hadn't decided in they were going to stop negotiating with the republicans. kyl said he wasn't going to whip up votes and grassley saying he might not support the thing he was negotiating for. all the signals were there and they weren't sure. when would they be sure? when the support of the american people drop to 29%? this is something they are putting out there as a threat they could pull back. it is a
is the day i break my diet. oh, this job. how do i work with these conditions? hello, america. i have decided, because i saw the president's town hall meeting -- oh, it was rivetting. i think i have to change my thinking around this healthcare bill, because now, all of a sudden, reputable doctors are showing up to town halls, like totally reputable doctors, like totally showing their support for obama-care. >> your name? >> we're position is that we are like so for treating preventable conditions. how will it help me as a p.d.p.? >> first of all, give her a hand, because she is a primary care physician. [applause] how long have you been practicing? >> four years. >> give her another hand! glenn: i got to tell you, that was like so awesome, she was just like, there, i mean, she was like, i'm a doctor and i have doctor-like questions. that was great, and then, finally, a town haller, without that pesky cell phone interrupting sheila. it was great. i loved how sheila was spontaneous, you know, give sheila a little loving. it was great. it was unscripted. it was almost a pure moment. sheila jacks
an statements that should horrify america and connections to some other people and to the white house and what it means for your healthcare in the future, particularly if you are elderly, handicapped or have a very young child. if you believe this country is great but that government healthcare is taking us in directions we promised ourselves we would never go down again, stand up. come, follow me. hello, america. tonight i ask you to stay with the program. this is not a sound byte program tonight, although it will be taken out of context and it will be used and it will be called fear mongering. what i call this is question with boldness. questions that need answers. we must have answers. i am only following the directions of the president of the united states. he told us how to find out what he really believes and that's exactly what we're going to do. in a couple of minutes, we're going to talk about healthcare, the views of obama's czars and his close advisors and why it's important to look there. it's important to know where they stand, but first, i want to start someplace to show you the
confronting their public servants. is that new in america? >> that report showed you and your viewers the sights and sounds of democracy in action. i think that should be applauded and we should say thank you to the people who are standing up to a very bad idea. we have in this tradition an ability for people to fight against ideas they don't like. we want them to do it peacefully and civilly but this should be respected, not criticized. if anybody is undermining the direction of the country it's people like dr. dean who say we should have a new health care system proposed by president obama. sean: interesting to see if the media will call him out on what he just lied about because we saw the tape and heard him with our own ears. 58 democratic senators. obviously byrd and kennedy are not feeling well so i wouldn't expect them to have a town hall but less than a third are willing to go out and meet with the american people. grandmothers, stay at home moms, veterans, concerned citizens. do you think they're hiding from the american people or they're afraid? >> clearly there's been a sca
wanted some legitimacy for their country. america has always said they would only talk to them in six- partyç talks, including our allies. kim jong-il got what he wanted, a former american president. as much as the white house and secretary of state say that there was no quid quo pro, and that president clinton was there on a private mission, -- it may have been a humanitarian issue, but even u.s. officials are telling us that he was given a briefing by cia and others before his visit. he was briefed on the latest with what they were doing, and there is no doubt duringç that three and a half hours with kim jong il, the issue must have come up. jon: is it possible that they held these meetings and did not discuss these issues? >> look at who met bill clinton. the deputy foreign minister who has been in charge of nuclear negotiations. he was very prominent. also, the north koreans, they broktwittered about this visit. they did not give much detail, just saying that president clinton came. the administration is trying their best to decoupled this visit from the nuclear issue. when yo
by fox news channel] david: the fix for america's money fix is cutting welfare spending. that's a forbes flip side sure to get you fired up. hi, everybody. i'm david asman. welcome to "forbes on fox." california is slashing welfare to save money. and, jack, you say all of america should do the same? >> absolutely. california is going to emerge from this budget crisis stronger in a couple of years' time because they've been forced to make hard decisions. one of those is cutting welfare. its welfare budge set $10 billion for 2010. they're going to have to trim that to become solvent. we can all take an example of that. yes, you need some short-term solution for unemployment benefits when people lose their jobs. but after that, encourage them to get back at work. at least have contingency that encourage looking for a job. david: so we should follow you in california? >> this is not born out by the fact. california kicked the can down the street. they borrowed from municipalities, cut $15 billion from education. at the last minute headlines by cutting against welfare. but what did he cut? he
future. i wanted this stopped. i don't want it 10 years from now. >> this is about america, remember that. >> i don't have insurance but i don't want health care either. >> yes, we will. >> no, you won't. >> talk to us that don't have health care. >> this is taking away our freedom of choice. the people said that we could have freedom of choice, where is our choice in this? >> a lot of passion although here we saw something that we have not seen before and that is a strong showing from the acorn folks. we have heard about conservative groups trying to get together to organize. our cameras got here after apparently witnesses tell me that acorn sent two busloads of people. one picture in lenticular, this was shown to me from a person who is a local person. -- one picture in particular. there is nothing illegal about that except that it upset the local population. this is a strongly conservative county, they showed up to voice their opinions and ask questions and they felt that they were disenfranchised and they were not able to get their opportunity to comment. they said that the union folk
that should horrify america and the connection to statements that other people and white house and what it new orleans your health care in the future particularly if you are elderly, handicapped or have very young child. if you believe this country is great the government health care is taking us in a direction we promised ourselves we never go down again. stand up, come, follow me. >> glenn: hello, america. tonight i ask you to stay with the program. this is not a sound by the program but it will taken out of context and it will be used fearmongering. what i call this is question with boldness. questions that need answers. we must have answers. i am only following the directions of the president of the united states. he told us how to find out what he really believes in. that is exactly what we're going to do in in a couple of minutes we'll talk about the views of obama's soldiers and why it's important to look -- obama's czars but first i wanted to start some places and show you the beginning of and the history of eugenics which means basically creating a master race by discouraging reproduc
business in america, because it is being crushed and the government has blood all over its hands. the obama administration and both parties in congress are forcing socialized medicine right down our throats. they are frorsing unions to take over successful businesses, and the hijacking of contracts of workers under the interestingly worded employee free choice act. they're raising your capital gains taxes, and when that frightening cap and trade passes, energy prices are going to skyrocket, not just in your home, you but also at te small business. how are they going to be able to afford to pay their utility bills? small businesses are some of the fastest growing ones out. there joining me is a man who knows all about the threats they are phrasing. his name is patrick burn, c.e.o. of one of of the moment successful retailers out there, overstock.com. also in the studio audience, we have a few other people. we have james murphy and lindsay pyren, president and vice presidents of a small business in ohio called e.s.t. an an lit analytical that smalls environmental instruments to the environmen
and then continue? >> i agree with you. i hold no for much of the practices of the insurance companies in america. don't get me wrong. we have to fix the pre-existing condition situation and we don't shout at my town hall meetings. i agree with you. we have to address the issue of people with pre-existing conditions, people who are unable to attain health care insurance and we should do it through risk pools and it is going to cost money. go ahead. >> and the other thing is, mayo clinic that you talked about having good practices is one of the ones that president obama has cited as being the type of medical facility that we should pattern our health care reform on. >> they just don't agree with his proposals. go ahead. >> they suggest some of the same things that the mayo clinic is doing and i have some experience with the mayo clinic. my husband, who was on medicare, chose to stay on regular medicare. so he had the choice of going to mayo. i chose an hmo with medicare. i am wondering, when we have that choice with our government-provided medicare, why are so many people opposed to a government-p
're praying for you. hello, america. i've been watching the media watch the media watch the town hall protests. do you remember the initial reaction? i believe it was astroturf. these are fake grassroots. these people aren't even real. senator barbara boxer. i like to call her babbs, says the last time she saw such nicely-dressed fake protests protests -- i don't even know what that means -- was in 2000 in florida with al gore, which, by the way i lived in florida. maybe i was responsible for that, too. that wasn't fake anger that. was real anger. fast forward to today, the fake grassroots is obviously not fake, so now that the poll numbers are going in the wrong direction and more people are getting sympathy for the people who attend these town hall meetings, the media has bailed on that fake strategy, and now have changed their opinion from this is fake anger to, man, these people are so angry they're dangerous. they don't have a gun. oh, if people have guns, we should remove all the guns. here is the one thing tonight. the radicals of the left, many of whom now work or meet at the white hou
this year let us offer new hope, new hope to an america uncertain about the present, but unsurpassed in its potential for the future. to all those who are idle in the cities and industries of america let us provide new hope for the dignity of useful work. democrats have always believed that a basic civil right of all americans is their right to earn their own way. the party of the people must always be the party of full employment. to all those who doubt the future of our economy, let us provide new hope for the reindustrialization of america. and let our vision reach beyond the next election or the next year to a new generation of prosperity. if we could rebuild germany and japan after world war ii, then surely we can reindustrialize our own nation and revive our inner cities in the 1980s. to all those who work hard for a living wage let us provide new hope that the price of their employment shall not be an unsafe workplace and a death at an earlier age. to all those who inhabit our land from california to the new york island, from the redwood forest to the gulfstream waters, let us provid
in america. >> i'm a big fan of your constitution. glenn: you are one of the only people that i have heard in a long time that says you are a fan of the constitution. it is not real popular here in america. >> i'm not popular among all the politicians. look, it will make you rich, free and independent, and it as driven value to thest of the world so that the world owes you something. glenn: here we have a congress and president not listening to the american people and about to deliver us the universal right to medicine that is just fantastic in your country. tell me about how great universal healthcare is. >> the most striking thing about it is that you are very often just sent back to the queue. you turn up with a complaint or ailment and you are told how about october of next year or whatever it is, and you are not able to supplement your treatment, your healthcare treatment with any private money of your own. people who had conditions and tried to buy drugs independently, they were told that the health treatment would be stopped. i had a friend of mine. this is an amazing story. a frien
than little sally's, stand up, and come follow me. hello, america. i don't know about you, but i have always wanted to be in the mob, and now that i am, it's fantastic! the cocaine, the women, the town hall healthcare protests. i don't remember seeing any of those in those great mob movies, but here's the one thing tonight, this is not a g.o.p. mob or manufactured anger in america. what is happening is negotiating, democrats, republican and independents, senses in their guts that something is not right, and something isn't right with the healthcare plan. the polls reflect that. 65% say obama is taking on too many issues. his approval is at 50%, now worst than bush's was after the first six months. he has fallen 7 points with independents. 52% oppose how he is handling healthcare. 39% approve. more than three out of four think his plan will add to the deficit. that is important. listen to it again. three out of four think this plan will add to the deficit. remember that stat. why the decline? america, i think it's because you know something is wrong when somebody tries to rush you, tha
, the prime minister of kenya. >>> when barack obama came into office, many in america and around the world hoped he would breathe life into the prospects between a peace deal between israel and the palestinians. obama quickly appointed a man on the issue, former senator george mitchell, who had negotiated the peace accords in the islands. it is considered by some to be the most right wing in memory, as is the new government. the prime minister netanyahu had been fiercely critical of any kind of palestinian state. his former minister had called for what some had characterized as leaders from israel. obama and netanyahu have clashd to expand settlements over the west bank. there has been some forward movement. he did accept the idea of a palestinian state about a month ago. there were some caveats. on the palestinian side, they are becoming somewhat less corrupt and more competent. they seem to have less support, even in gaza, where talks continue to be hellish. isn't the real story not these talks with the palestinians but military action against iran? the former u.n. ambassador john bolton
can't run for president, but you can just run for congress. you have a lot of fans here in america. >> i'm a big fan of your constitution and a strict interpretationist about it. glenn: you are one of the only politicians in a long time that we have heard say that you are a fan of constitution. it is not popular here in america. >> i'm not popular among all the politicians but it made you rich, free and independent, and it has driven those values to every other continent in the world so the world owes you something. glenn: here we have a congress and a president that are not listening to the american people, and they're not listening or reading the constitution and about to deliver us the universal right to medicine that is just fantastic in your country. tell me about how great universal healthcare is. >> well, the most striking thing about it is that you are very often just sent to the back of the queue. you turn up with a complaint, with an ailment, and you're told, ok, how about october of next year, or whatever it is, and you're then not able to supplement your treatment, your
health and it is bad for the economic health of america. my husband had alzheimer's disease for 10 years, and sadly he died last year. but i had the freedom to talk to his doctor and participate in his treatment. i would lose that freedom under this bill. some panel of bureaucrats would decide what his treatment would be, and whether or not it would be cost-effective. i agree that our american health care needs reform, but we can do lots of things to improve our present health care. i don't think we need to throw out our present health care and have a whole new government system. i am totally against the government taking it over. [applause] i wanted president obama to succeed, but i am not terrified at the way -- at the direction at this country under president obama, harry reid, and nancy pelosi. they have spent billions of dollars in the last few months, and we're trillions of dollars in debt. congressman connolly, you are our representative. you represent we the people. i implore you to vote no on this bill, preserve our freedom, and prevent our country from sliding into economic rui
. stand up! come on, follow me. hello, america. oh, it's quite a show tonight. yes. by the way, that wasn't the only gem from the town hall meeting yesterday. apparently barack obama still thinks doctors are all greedy cash-hungry limb-cutting monsters. >> if a family-care physician works with his or her patient to help them lose weight, modify diet, monitors whether they're taking their medications in a timely fashion, they might get reimbursed a pittance, but if that same diabetic ends up getting their foot amputated, that's $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 immediately the surgeon is reimbursed. glenn: and that's how the doctors get you. you would think that maybe the tweed men there in the white house would have figured out, hey, this didn't go well the last time they brought up the evil doctors that are yanking tonsils out of poor innocent children, maybe you shouldn't do it again. no, no. instead, the geniuses at the white house step it up. now, doctors -- see if i have this right -- are cutting the feet off of people for cash. wow. i haven't read that story anywhere. maybe it's about time
, thrill, to be part of the best economic news story in america." that's interesting, because a lot of auto dealers don't share that sentiment. they're out millions waiting for the rebates on cars they have already sold under the program. two are joining me now. matt luzio from flemington, new jersey and job puglisi, part of the samsung auto group that operates more than a dozen dealerships in new jersey. thanks for coming up. you are both out of a lot of money. matt, how much are you waiting for the government to send you? >> close to $600,000. eric: representing how many cars? >> 130. eric: how about you? >> 300,000 dollars and about 150 cars. eric: the program says they're supposed to send you back that money within ten days, right? you have already been paid? >> we have been paid on three cars. >> we have been paid on no cars. eric: a total of three have been paid. are you nervous? >> yes. eric: what are you nervous about? what could possibly go wrong? >> we're nervous that we're sitting on an outlay of cash that's not in our business. it is difficult to manage the business without that
kennedy, a man who fought passionately and pragmatically in the senate. >> he challenged our america, and our teddy changed america. >> people have called teddy and me the odd couple, which was certainly true. >> two of senator kennedy's closest friends, warren hatch of utah and christopher dodd of connecticut, share their personal memories. plus senator maria wall of washington on the post-kennedy debate for office. and in our american dispatch, the kennedy connection to boston sports dynasty. i talked to the president and ceo of the red sox, larry laquino. four years now since hurricane katrina devastated the gulf coast. senator andrews gets the last word. "state of the union" report for sunday, august 30. >>> a man who never stopped trying to right wrongs and someone who wasn't perfect but believed in redemption. just a few of the sentiments expressed at the funeral of senator edward kennedy in boston yesterday. president obama led the eulogy in saying goodbye at arlington cemetary. here is a reflection on senator kennedy's life, oren hatch of utah and senator christopher dodd. se
to the vfw on america's two foreign wars and the troops who are fighting them. you'll see it live right here in the "newsroom.." >>> two and a half months in the hurricane sen and bill and claude it light up the radar. hello, everyone. i'm kieyra phillips. you're live here in the "cnn newsroom." -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> and they fought for you. who fights for them. american veterans focused health care. we're pushing forward on both fronts. a live address to the vfw in this hour and a congressional session of conservative opponents to the health plan. you know we've covered their causes and criseses to tainted equipment at v.a. hospitals. there are people stories, not number stories. we can't ignore numbers like these. almost a million unprocessed claims. if claims are denied it can take a year and a half, sometimes much longer to go through the appeals. factor in a passionate fight to overhaul the nation's health care system and this becomes the scene outside president's adegree. cnn's ed henry joins me live. how does it push into this for reform? we sure know they want it.
and i mean america really falling back. i mean, america really declining. i mean opportunity slipping away. sound -- founded fierce? unfounded fears? >> the reason they're unfounded is because there's a disconnect between the people who are leading this country and the people who are supposed to be leading. a new poll shows that 70% of americans would favor less government and lower taxes. their attitude, that tastes great and it's less filling. that's what they'd really like to see. but the government and, look, republicans have to take some blame on this because they help set some of this stuff up with the tarp bill last fall. but when you start having a government that ignores the people, holds them in contempt, makes fun of them, calls them a mob -- sean: when did this ever happen? >> ridicules them. the divide gets greater and greater but clearly there's something not getting through to the people in washington, d.c. sean: governor, everything that the government seems to touch is bankrupt. i'm using a term government derangement syndrome, that in spite of the post office failing
and right for america. here in montana, we also know the value of an honest word. let me tell you, there is plenty of dishonesty out there about what health care reform will or will not do. now, you've all seen the tv show, mythbusters, right? i have been going around the state busting myths about health care, whether it is bogus information about rationing care, cutting benefits for sen yu y yurs or interfering with the doctor/patient relationship. these myths are being busted right open. they are just plain balogna. that's why our president is here to talk with us and help us spread the truth about health care reform. it will lower costs. it will give -- make sure every american has access to quality affordable health care. [ applause ] in closing, i want to thank all of you, the people i work for, for coming out today, for getting engaged and taking the initiative to get involved. that is the cornerstone of our democracy. that is why our nation remains the greatest on earth. >>> there you go. we are going to try and get that picture. it's almost like the interference you get fr
care in america. the previous caller hit the nail on the head when he said that wall street has taken over our health care, taking away from the people and giving it to the dollar profits. now we have a mess. and thank you, sis and. guest: as -- thank you, c-span. guest: it has not been in a huge issue for health reform so far, it has ballooned in the background. i think that it is something that could crop up, especially when the finance bill comes out. host: ted, calling on the democratic line from clinton, maryland. caller: good morning? can you hear me? host: yes, weekend. -- we can. caller: un this lady keep repeating the fact that the government -- you and this lady keep repeating the fact that the government ran out of money for cash for clunkers, but that does not mean that it was not successful. the larger issue is that the american people are being used and misused by the press and public authority. we have a health care bill in this country of $10.50 trillion per year. 30% goes to the insurance companies. that is $770 billion. that money could be used to help the president

back at her fashion for good taste on "good morning america." >> from the vault, sushi in 1985 and a tasteful way to prepare sweet peas in 1982. >> when i was living in paris and learning cooking, my old freven chef taught me how to make big old store bought peas and they can be delicious. you start out with half a teaspoon of salt, about three cups of peas and then some lettuce leaves. those are shredded lettuce leaves. then two, three tablespoons of minced shall ots or scallions and about two tablespoons of bulleter. and a little bit of sugar. the reason for that is when you got old peas, you need a little sugar to give them that fresh taste because the sugar in old peas turns to stach. you want to make them taste sweet. >> now, this is the big prick of all. tack your hands and press the ingredients into the piece to brood them because that makes the flavor penetrate and then on to the stove and then put in just enough water to cover the peas and then put them over high heat with the cover on them, let them really boil hard. that's going to steam boil. it will take about 15 m
this experiment, including states right here in america and you will meet a man and woman whose lives were saved by the current health care system and they say they may not be here if the government controlled health care. >> i promise you, we will pass reform by the end of this year, because the american people need it. sean: president obama has spent the majority of his first year in office attempting to push through a $1 trillion health care initiative aimed at controlling medical costs and extending coverage to millions of uninsured americans. >> if we step back from this challenge at this moment, we are consigning our children to skyrocketing premiums and deficits. sean: after the practice has called for overhaul of the system and the president appears to be making a major concession. >> whether we have it or don't have it is the not the entirety of health care reform. this is one sliver of it. >> i think what is important is choice and competition and i'm convinced at the end of the day the plan will have both of those, but that is not the essential element. sean: what caused the white hou
is to control the spiraling cost of health care in america. and, now, the message is, we have to change the insurance industry. >> president barack obama: this is something that sometimes we have forgotten, in the health care debate. these are ordinary americans, no different from anybody else. they are working hard and meeting responsibilities and are held hostage by health insurance companies that deny them coverage and drop their coverage and charge fees they cannot afford for care they desperately need. it is hurting too many families in business. -- and businesses and it is wrong and we'll fix it when we pass health insurance reform this year. [cheers and applause]. >> jamie: good morning, i'm jamie colby. >> i'm rick folbaum, glad to be with you jamie, welcome to today's edition of america's news headquarters and let's go to mike emmanuel live in phoenix with more and mike, past couple of days, two more health care town halls with the president and any more on the agenda at this point? >> reporter: no, rick, really that was the end of a push, by the president for health care refor
more inç america's is the key to america's future economic success. how many times are theyç not ñ+ing to pay their utilities? this is what we are talking about. hard-working americans that deserve a living wage. this issue is as old as the last years in the united states it, but we have come together at important time of decency fairness for working americans. i, for one, am tired of being on floor of the united states where virtually every of the united states senate has a good health e program, and is subsidized by each and everyone that are out there. the torch will be passed again to lay new generation of americans -- to a new generation , so with barack obama and for you and for me, our country will be committed to his cause. the work begins a new. the hope of rises again, and the dream lives on. greta: a true public servants, senator ted kennedy will be friday at arlington national cemetery. next up on "the record," yes, to be livid. of dollars in bonuses, and whys- and are doing that, they hiding soscáhing from you? and president obama sending a jets -- and a president e
of the minds i think on some additional regulation. not a global regulator. the united states of america should never agree to have an international regulator that tells it what to do and what not to do with its economy. but there are some things, i think, that looks now like they're going to come out of this meeting. some saw a regulation of tax haven is a healthy thing. that would be a healthy thing globally. some regulation, perhaps, of hedge funds and things like that. so i think we'll probably see that, and i think the obama administration will be going along with that. >> what about the core financial issue, which is what to do about these banks? you wrote an article in the financial times in which you basically remembered the experience of japan's last decade when you were in high government office, and you pointed out that the key problem was they didn't deal with the bad banks fast enough and decisively enough. they kept some of these zombie banks alive, well enough not to die but not well enough to actually give loans. it does seem like there may be so
. uncompensated care in america cost $43 billion. you and i pay that tax. now, -- i want to address the 47 million who do not have health care coverage, to bring them into the system and that can help lower cost by having a bigger risk pools. the second thing i want to do is having meaningful cost of health care reform. let's start with medicare. i want to close the doughnut hole on prescription drugs. i want to make sure all of our seniors have access to the medications they need and that no one in america over 55 or 65 casta make this terrible decision, to lead by a meal or the prescription drugs that i need? yew instead both the there are some specialized prescription drugs that cost a lot of money. i want to make sure a catastrophic illness does not bankrupt families in america. in our district alone, the 11th congressional district, last year, 1430 families filed for bankruptcy because of health care costs. any family in america, young or old, could be one accident or one illness away from catastrophic health care costs. capping health-care -- catastrophic costs so that the family is forced i
: president obama responded it is true. you cannot cover all the uninsured in america for three. he reiterated its promise to completely avoid raising taxes on those who earn less than 1/4 of a million dollars per year. the president has an answer. >> 2/3 of the money we can obtain just by eliminating waste and inefficiencies. the congressional budget office agreed with that, which is not something i am making up. republicans do not dispute it. the other 1/3 we would have to find additional revenue, but it would not come on the backs of the middle-class. shepard: the president said he appreciated the question and "the respectful way in which the man asked it." a nod to the reality that the meetings have become difficult at times. major garrett, there has been talk that things might get a little more rowdy. >> the audience here was first- come, first-served, unlike in new hampshire, which was by lottery. some people slept out overnight to make sure they got into the auditorium. the town is just outside of a big city in montana. the state has been trending democratic of late. the questions the p
on your life, what do you think? come on, stand up, follow me. well, hello, america. everything is sunshine and lollipops today. are you one of the tens of thousands of people who don't want government run healthcare and then showed up at a town hall rally to let it be known? here is the one thing tonight, if that's you, you're part of that right wing extremist angry mob. that's what the white house said, a mob. by the way, your anger is fake. it s it is not organic. it's much healthier for the planet if it were, though. it is not grassroots. not a chance in hell you have ever experienced anything at all that hacked you off in the government, like even little things like waiting in line at the post office or the dmv, oh, no. you're not waiting at the post office trying to buy a stamp and it takes you about 45 minutes and then you say to yourself, man, i wish i could stand in line like this when i need a liver. no. you're just a g.o.p. robot that's been activated. at least that's what the holy trinity of the media, the white house and the d.n.c. are now saying. >> they lost the e
, and in all who can pursue their dream in an america that is more equal and more just, including myself. the kennedy name is synonymous with the democratic party, and at times ted was the target of partisan campaign attacks. but in the united states senate i can think of no one who has engendered greater respect or affection from members on both sides of the aisle. his seriousness of purpose was perpetually matched by humility, warmth, and good cheer. he could passionately battle others and do so peerlessly on the senate floor for the causes that he held dear, and yet still maintain warm friendships across party lines. that is one reason he became not only one of the greatest senators of our time, but one of the most accomplished americans ever to serve our democracy. his extraordinary life on this earth has come to an end. the extraordinary good that he did lives on. for his family he was a guardian. for america he was the defender of a dream. i spoke earlier this morning to senator kennedy's beloved wife vicki who was to the end such a wonderful source of encouragement and strength. o
in america. so i would actually make this more small business-friendly than even the blue dogs did. if it was up to me, i'd say anybody with a payroll of less than million dollars or anybody with a number of employees less than 50 is exempt from the mandate. now we're going to take the flier. i see i only have a few minutes left. i'm just -- i have -- since i wrote about this in the book, i feel some -- i think it's okay for me to say this. i'm not pushing this. but it was part of my platform in 2004. [laughter] >> it's slightly revised. [applause] >> if i were going to do this, i actually argue in the book that we really don't need a mandate and i don't think mandates are going to be very popular. because mandating anything with the american people is never very popular which is why it makes me mad while the republicans think about sticking us with the mandates that we have today. [applause] >> but if i could do this any way i wanted to, this is a flier, i'm not lobbying for this. all i care about is the public option. i would give everybody under 25 or 30 medicaid for free. and i
is this to get done? >> there are lines in the sand, but i really believe america will reach consensus and we will have the insurance reforms that are necessary. we will reform the system and we will have a bill that we can achieve good health care. bill: do you think it can be done by the end of the year? >> i hope so, yes. bill: of will take that as a maybe. thank you. thank you for coming in. megyn: she dominated the women's world championship, dominating by far. then there were questions whether if she was a he. now there are five doctors, several weeks of testing, and an international scandal. our doctor now explains why this is necessary. bill: wasn't there a better story of the day? hundreds of african bees go wild in one woman's yard. are you safe in your backyard? ç>> lots of bees. >> she had bees in her nose, mouth, all over her head and torso. are you receiving a payout from a legal settlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. n diabetics on medicare.
system, particularly the public model which are worth emulating. >> with respect to the buy america provision, your prime minister raises this every time we see each other. that is important to note. he is expressing his country's concerns. i think it is also to keep it in perspective, that we have not seen some sweeping steps to protectionism. there was a particular provision within our recovery package, stimulus package, that did not extend beyond that. it was wto compliant. it was not something that i thought was necessary, and but it was introduced at a time when we had a severe economic situation and it was important for us to act quickly and not get bogged down in the day to around this particular provision. prime minister harper and i discussed this, and there might be mechanisms whereby local states and jurisdictions can work with provinces to allow possible -- cross border procurement practices that expands the trading relationship, but i think it is important to keep it in perspective. this has in no way in danger the billion dollars in trade taking place between our two c
in just a minute. >>> and some packing heat. and militias in america are on the rise. what is going on? is it the economy? are they angry with liberals, or angry over a black president? we will discuss that. >>> and the transportation secretary wants answers when passengers are trapped on a tar mat. how long is too log to be stuck on a plane? what are your rights once you board a plane. >>> and economists say the recession is over. what does it mean for your house or job or 401(k)? it's 9:00 a.m. pull up a share and join the "morning meeting." >>> good morning to you. lots of democracy with town halls and other events being held across the married. contessa setting things up. >> nearly two dozen health care events scheduled for today. they are poe ttentially facing with more protestors. and democrats and republicans are following arlen specter's lead holding town halls. and some of the moments, they got wild, not so much the president's town hall, but people have to fight to be heard. angry protesters shouted down senator claire mccaskill yesterday. >> i don't understand the rudeness.
. it is grass roots. now, they are organizing, but that is what we do in america. people do it on the left, and people do it on the right. most people in the middle, frankly, do not, and that is where i am tried to stay focused. the state is split 50/50, and i think we need to bring them together and have a compromise. bill: we do need a reform in the health-care industry, but it is chaotic right now, and part of it is the president's fault because he has not been able to articulate in a number of press conferences what this is all about. are you disappointed in the way the president has presented his vision of health care? >> well, i think the problem is, bill, is that there has been an effort to let these bills grow organically in congress, and there is a reason why they compare lawmaking to sausage making. you have a lot of opinions, a lot of pushing and pulling. one bill will emerge in the house, and one bill will emerge in the senate, and there will be a lot of debate and discussion, and that is when you will see a lot of it coming together. bill: i am ok intellectually. i graduated f
